Horizon3.ai NodeZero Pentest ExpertsNodeZero from Horizon3.ai is a cutting-edge penetration test (pentest) product family that supports repeated, simultaneous, programmable assessment of your network to help you find, prioritize, remediate, and confirm cybersecurity weaknesses before threat actors can exploit them. Penetration tests allow you to operate proactively to keep cybercriminals from stealing data, disturbing operations, or inflicting monetary or reputational loss. (For information about pentesting, see Progent's penetration testing services.)

NodeZero is able to use the latest cyber attack methods by steadily probing throughout your network and chaining together vulnerabilities until an exploitable attack path is exposed. NodeZero then benignly exploits the security gap as evidence of the weakness, assesses and prioritizes the potential havoc that might result from a true malicious attack, reports the issue, and offers AI-based advice for remediation. NodeZero's comprehensive reports point out systemic issues where making a single repair can eliminate multiple attack chains. Once you have closed the discovered security issues, you can execute NodeZero's 1-click validation feature to confirm remediation actions worked. NodeZero can also generate compliance reports mandated for SOC2, HIPAA, GDPR, and other common compliance standards.

Progent offers the talents of a NodeZero Certified Operator to help you to design and implement comprehensive penetration tests of your perimeter and your internal IT infrastructure in order to realistically evaluate your present cybersecurity posture. Progent can assist you to set up and run NodeZero pentests tailored for your IT network, understand NodeZero reports, and fix vulnerabilities according to their potential impact on your network. Progent can also assist you to develop a unified cybersecurity strategy that streamlines management and provides maximum protection for on-prem, multi-cloud, and perimeter IT assets.

Internal and External Penetration Tests
Internal penetration tests with NodeZero assume your perimeter has been breached and carry out a penetration test of your internal network infrastructure to determine what security weaknesses may exist that expose your network to serious compromise. To help you to organize your mitigation work, the NodeZero dashboard makes it clear which internal security weaknesses could result in the most damage to your information system and which ones allow the most attack vectors. External penetration testing with NodeZero is cloud-based and utilizes the latest hacker tactics to break through your perimeter defense.

Common Security Gaps that Penetration Testing Can Help Uncover
Threat actors incessantly probe IT networks for weaknesses by using an ever-evolving arsenal of tools and techniques. While there are many types of cybersecurity vulnerabilities, below are some of the most common attack vectors hackers attempt to exploit:

  • Applications that have not had the latest revisions and security patches applied
  • Code injection flaws that allow hackers to input code or queries in a web app that tricks the app into executing malicious instructions or providing access to important resources
  • Zero-day vulnerabilities in software that neither the intended victim nor the software vendor are yet aware of and so have not had a chance to develop a solution
  • Authentication issues that make it simpler to break into a system or pose as a legitimate user
  • Configuration vulnerabilities that cause gaps in cybersecurity systems like opening risky ports or leaving cloud storage containers available to anybody with the right address
  • Unpatched OS
  • EOL products for which cybersecurity patches have stopped being developed
  • SQL Injection
  • Weak account credentials
  • Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
  • Insecure Direct Object References (IDOR)
  • Device misconfigurations
  • Stale objects
  • Open systems access
  • Outdated methodology cybersecurity vs modern leading practices
  • Failure to deploy out-of-band 2FA secured communications (example: Man In The Middle Attacks)

Benefits of Progent's Pentesting Services
Progent offers low-cost external penetration testing services on a single-time or ongoing basis. NodeZero's autonomous testing offers fast testing and delivers a comprehensive evaluation of your outward facing security profile. Progent's "ethical hacking" services carry a multitude of advantages.

  • Meet Requirements of Cyber Insurance Providers: For a growing number of cyber insurance providers, periodic pentesting is needed to qualify for or retain coverage.
  • Identify Perimeter Weaknesses: External penetration tests help organizations discover vulnerabilities in their external-facing systems, such as websites, servers, and network devices.
  • Realistic Threat Simulation: Pentests simulate real-world attack simulations, offering companies a better comprehension of their vulnerability to a multitude of cyber threats.
  • Compliance Requirements: Many regulatory standards (e.g., PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR) call for periodic security assessments, including external penetration tests. Ignoring these requirements can have legal and financial consequences.
  • Risk Mitigation: Identifying and remediating vulnerabilities proactively can reduce the risk of data breaches, economic losses, and reputational damage.
  • Third-Party Vendor Risk Assessment: Companies can use external penetration tests to assess the security of vendors, verifying that these partners do not add vulnerabilities into your organization's supply chain.
  • Improved Incident Response: A pentest can help organizations refine their incident response practices by exposing shortcomings in their ability to discover and react to security incidents.
  • Security Awareness: Running pentests can raise awareness among employees and stakeholders about the importance of security. It can also help educate them on safe online practices.
  • Establish a Cybersecurity Baseline Evaluation: A pentest can create a baseline for cybersecurity, allowing organizations to track the efficacy of cybersecurity enhancements over time.
  • Competitive Advantage: Showing a commitment to security by means of regular penetration testing can help you gain competitive advantage, assuring clients and stakeholders that their data is safe.
  • Cybersecurity Budget Justification: Penetration test reports can provide tangible evidence of the necessity of increased spending in security initiatives and technologies.
  • Internal Policy Validation: Companies can assess whether their internal cybersecurity policies are effective in preventing external threats.
  • Shrinking Attack Surface: By identifying and addressing weaknesses discovered by a penetration test, companies can reduce their target surface size and cause it to be harder for attackers to compromise their systems.
  • Attack Simulation: Companies can launch sophisticated but benign attacks, allowing their security teams to practice dealing with realistic threats in a safe environment.
  • Ongoing Improvement: Regular external penetration tests help companies follow their cybersecurity enhancements over time, helping them remain prepared for the latest threats.
  • Legal and Regulatory Protection: In case of a security breach, having documented proof of periodic pentesting efforts can offer a level of legal and regulatory protection by demonstrating due diligence in cybersecurity.
